    Seeking immigration photo of my great grandparents

    Janet Kitten Wayfarer

      Where do I research to find a immigration photo of my Germany great grandparents to Galveston, TX, from Bremen, Germany in 1867?

          Good afternoon,


          Thank you for posting your question on History Hub.


          Immigration records are arranged by port of arrival. We recommend contacting the National Archives at Fort Worth to request a search of their holdings for the immigration records of your grandparents to see if a photo is included.


          Additionally, immigration records older than 50 years are publicly available, and many have been digitized by National Archives partners including Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org. These are paid subscription services but most local libraries offer free access.


          We hope this information is helpful in your research.
